I forward my application for a post as a trainee server in your restaurant to commence from January 2013. I learnt of your restaurant from a friend. I am a Korean National with sound knowledge of English and Korean language. In addition, I am currently undertaking a short course in German language and can communicate to an elementary extent.
I am a career hospitalist with a Bachelors Degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst where I majored in Hospitality and Tourism Management. I also have a Post graduate diploma acquired from Cesar Ritz College Luzern where I did major in Hospitality and Tourism Management. To cap my academic qualifications is my major in Hospitality and Tourism Management, where I undertook an associate in Science at Bunker Hill Community College and graduated with Honors. I am by fact knowledgeable and conversant with a number of dishes.
I have worked in several institutions and service centres in the hospitality and tourism industry. Among the places I have worked in are: Select Service Partner AG where I worked in the cashpool, University of Massachusetts, Auxiliary Services, Manna House in Arlington, Massachusetts and Sky view 41 in South Korea. Currently, I am serving in an office, in Zurich, as a trainee.
I am requesting for a chance to work in your restaurant for a combination of factors. Foremost, I am in need of requisite experience especially in the preparation of European cuisines, which I tend, to have limited knowledge and exposure. I also am aware of your restaurant’s preparation of Asian dishes and use of Asian species. I have valuable and colossal knowhow in Asian dishes and would apply the knowledge in your kitchen.
I am aware of the challenges that would likely face me during my stay at your restaurant. For example, I only have elementary knowledge of German language, which is the main medium of communication in your restaurant. However, I have a positive and encouraging approach to work. In fact, I am undertaking a course in the German language. I appreciate your restaurant for the exceptional experience and services it would avail to me. I am focused and committed to working in your restaurant as a trainee server or even in any other capacity available even in the near future.
Being new in the hospitality industry, I am willing to enter into any long term commitments even in terms of permanent work. I do not mind working long hours. In fact, my weakness in the workplace has always been extending hours. I do enjoy and love my work and feel proud when appreciated by my service consumers, that is, the customers. I am committed to observing good work ethics and following terms and rules of engagement by the spirit and the letter. I also commit to approach work positively with the desire to learn and interact with other workers and work as a team. I would want to use my foreign status to add value to the workers, customers and your restaurant. My motivation lies in the desire to gain experience and knowledge on foods and the hospitality industry in its entirety. I am certain your restaurant would be of essential in the achievement of my objectives. Thank you for your consideration.
